I've had a little Spring '78 thing going on the side here this week, think I'll have to pay a slight return to this show. Iko is one of those slower versions here than it got later, I believe. But probably truer to the original way the song was done. Just a hunch about that because I don't really know the whole history of the song. I remember the Neville's version, good ol' N'awlins boys, real hot. My cousin and I used to sing a version of that together with our acoustic guitars. We had a real good man and woman vocal harmony going. Good times long ago.

I love April 78. One of those months that the Dead were on. Akin to Nov 73, May 77, May 81, Aug 82.

yes, absolutely re: April '78....I think one of the most underrated Dead runs ever:

4/8, 4/16, and 4/24 are all worthy of even Top 10 consideration.

Do not forget the 4/12/78 US Blues! I will hardly ever recommend that tune, but come on.... worth another visit:

I do NOT. And I'm pressing some Duke family/deadhead alums on that mysterious Page JGB video, but that could take forever to see the light of day. The band knew about this Cameron footage from the student-run Cable 13 and asked me and a buddy to get it for them when we attempted an interview at Hampton in '84 for WXDU (college radio - best interview we ever did was NRBQ; they messed with us hard). We returned to school and tried to get it for them but were not met with much positive response re the same. Apparently the video was "liberated" at some later date by someone on the "inside". I'd never heard of the Page JGB stuff until LIA's post the other week.

Give me a few days and I'll find my Duke DVD. It is a good clear B&W film. I seem to remember it was the Betty Board SBD for audio. Sorry, I don't have the JGB show, but would love to hear it someday.

Not again. It's like 3 times since March '10.

Are things bad for you BD? Do you have to console yourself after last Saturday by feeling Cameron in any way? At least you are still alive for the rest of the month w/ a shot at the ring. We are already dead.

btw- This USB Kicks Tush!

Nope. I don't fret until the NCAAs. I don't recall anyone thinking we were going to cut down nets heading into the ACC Tourney at this time last year. That said, I do want a rematch with UNC in the championship game. I think the Heels can make a deep run in the Tourney.

BTW, Kyrie is practicing with the team...

Does it work the other way if a lady gives a guy some beads?
